Our dalmatian Missy had the parvo disease is serious,because she got it at 3months old. I was watching her she was having diarrhea and vomiting. We took her to the vet. They did the test and gave us the bad news. They say to use pepto bismol and use baby aspirin. Gave her baby food and yogurt for a few days. After a week she pull out of it. Now at 7months old you would not now she had parvo. And Missy enjoying life now with no problems.

As a dog trainer who works inside a pet store, I am always telling people to keep their new 8 week old puppies off the ground because of nasty stuff like parvo. When I first got my puppy, i would always leave me work shoes out side before I came in.

(CPV) IS NOT TO TAKE LIGHTLY! Get your puppy
My first puppy contracted (CPV) shortly after getting spayed,we got her rabbie shot but forgot about reg. puppie shots. She was 6 1/2 months old when she got sick, luckly we caught it in the
stage . She came through treatment with flying colors, but it cost us over $800.00 to save her life. I can't have childern ,so she's my (kid). Since then a year later I addoted another puppy. Belive me he's gotten all his shoots so far!!!!!

I just saw a case of parvo a few weeks ago. The puppy was not vaccinated because the owners were ignorant of the risks.

People need to realize how important the vaccinations are and that you need to have the whole series (whether it's 2,3, etc) for that vaccine to do any good. Also, why aren't these people getting their pets to a vet when they see something is not right? This is what I have seen at our vet's office. Most of the pets that are so sick have been sick for quite a few days or they got the first vaccination for their pet but never bothered coming back again.

In our experience, having helped treat over 3,000 dogs (and cats) for Parvo, the two biggest problems are that people think they have way more time than they do (one dog died five hours after the first bout of diarrhea), and they are unaware that the early symptoms are usually behavioural (e.g. loss of appetite, lethargy) and not physical (e.g. vomiting, diarrhea). People also place far too much trust in vaccinations, because they are being led to believe that this will make their dog immune to the virus, which is simply not the case.
